shows the race in virginia is getting closer. president obama leads mitt romney by four points. 51% to 47%. president obama, a nod from "the new york times," the paper's editorial board is endorsing him for a second term. and mitt romney, another endorsement of his own. "the des moines register" supporting the republican nominee for president. joining me now, deputy political direct for for "the washington most," anne cornerbl blue. i do want to tell you that it was not a pretty picture as i was getting miked up and finishing makeup. i was on the phone with rick green of the vice president and editor of "the des moines register." they are not putting him out here today to elaborate on their decision and why they came to this decision to endorse mitt romney, he did tell me, bottomline, it was a lot of discussion. that newspaper believes if you look had 40 years from now, a thoughtful, long-term approach to make a robust economy. they felt mitt romney got the nod that way, and governor romney had a better set of tools to break through the gridlock in washington, d.c. a lot of specula
the president a four-point lead over governor romney. the president is struggling with white voters. 41% among white men. let me play what senator jim webb said to chuck todd on this issue. take a listen. >> how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the party of andrew jackson, only be getting 28 periods of time of the white male working class vote? from my perspective it's because of the interest group politics in the democratic party, that particular cultural group doesn't believe the democrats like that. >> are some white voters turned off by the democratic party? if so, where does the popular clinton factor come in? >> the president is there and will be in ohio for a reason. the president can bring into focus the idea that with the right economic policies and if you stick with it, as we did in 1995 and 1996, prosperity comes along. the real key numbers in ohio are look at the unemployment rate when the president came into office and where it is now. it's down i think nearly 50%. the auto bailout, some of the president's investments in manufacturing have really paid off in ohio,
to have you here. as we look at the latest polling out of pennsylvania showing mitt romney within striking distance, just four points separating the two candidates, 49% to 45%, so within the margin of error here, a $1.2 million pennsylvania ad by the romney camp, should the president be concerned? >> well, you're always concerned in elections. when i ran for election as mayor, i got 81% of the vote, i was concerned. that's number one. but number two, this is a sign that the romney folks know that ohio is gone and the only path to the electoral map is to expand it and get a pennsylvania or a minnesota or a michigan. and so it's really a hail mary pass. the polls are between four and six and you don't make that up in a week of television. if mitt romney had started in pennsylvania right after his first debate with that great performance, it might have made a race here, but it's too late. they have got a lot of money so they have got no reason not to low the hail mary pass but it's not going to make a difference here. i believe it is a sign of real desperation that they concluded that they ca
romney is campaigning over the last 48 hours, then surely the president who only has four days left until the general election, has to campaign, too, doesn't he? >> sure he can but he could divide his time, couldn't he? i don't see how he's spending any time focused on this. mitt romney has no responsibilities here. he's the challenger. he actually cut off his campaigning. at every one of these rallies he asks for contributions. nobody can substitute for the president of the united states. nobody. he's the commander in chief. it's his responsibility. what we have here is a commander in chief who is constantly putting the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he
the 2012 presidential election. four days. president obama and mitt romney, they are campaigning nonstop. and thanks to cnn's vast resources, our crews are spread across the map to cover the candidates' final sprint to the election. we have reporters in the crucial battleground states that will decide the election. and multiple crews in the all-important state of ohio right now. amidst all of this, both presidential candidates were in ohio. and trying to spin the latest jobs numbers to their advantage. the economy added 171,000 new jobs in october. that's more than analysts expected. also, revised figures from august and september show another 84,000 jobs were added more than first reported. those are the revised numbers. the unemployment rate is 7.9%. that's slightly higher than september's 7.8%. our chief business correspondent ali velshi is in toledo, ohio, in that battleground state, ali, what are they saying over there? how are these numbers likely to play out if at all on the campaign trail? >> reporter: well, you know, ohio's interesting. not only is it a tight race and one of the

-up, too, this is a different candidate than four years ago. this is not john mccain, this is mitt romney. when it comes to on the ground activities, that's the first fact to remember. if you look at poll after poll, republicans and conservatives are excited about their nominee, especially after his performance at the debates. that's the first step. second step is that some of the best veterans in our party at the rnc with rick wily, at the romney campaign are running the ground efforts. it's a vanity statistic to say how many paid staff you have in the state. that's important, but also important is the enthusiasm and who is managing it. if you talk to the obama people. i was in texas asking obama people involved in the ground game there. is it the same feeling as in 2008? this is not the same. >> based on early numbers we are seeing in terms of relatively voting, whether it's ohio, iowa, here in florida, if we are using early voting as a gauge for enthusiasm, imperical evidence would suggest the president has a substantial advantage. >> you're right, but it's the benchmark. what republic

, ohio, ohio, ohio, ohio. in the next four days the president and mitt romney will visit ohio on no less than six separate occasions. the president has just wrapped -- actually he's just about to start his third rally in the state and you can feel the energy of this final push with a fired up crowd and a president ready to go. >> you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. you know that i'll fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. you know that. >> and further to this issue of trust, the president took aim at mr. romney for misleading voters with egregious and desperate claims that chrysler is moving jeep production to china. >> it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. >> no, it isn't what being president is all about, but it is wh

of the mess and that's why i am running for a second term. that's why i need your help. >> romney is targeting voters in swing states. people believe ohio will be crucial. >> this is an electtionion aboug things. the american people can't afford four more years. change that will bring and opportunity. >> a new opinion poll suggests romney has topped 50% on support of likely voters. the first time he hit that mark. abc news and "washington post" have made 1,400 likely voters from sunday to wednesday. 50% of respondents said they would vote for romney. 47% for obama. the pollsters asked who would better manage the economy. 52% said romney. 43% said obama. the election is decided by the number of electoral votes allotted to each state. there are 538 votes in the electoral college. abc news estimates obama is likely to win 217 of them, romney, 191. >>> syrian military commanders say they'll abide by a cease-fire during a muslim holiday over the weekend, but government and opposition forces have shown little sign of letting up in their fighting. >> united nations and arab league envoy organized the
cain's lead among white men four years ago was half that. >> mitt romney may have a hard time relating to voters, but he is dialed into white men. they are very much attuned to what he is saying about the economy. >> reporter: in fact, in contrast to the president and that mtv town hall, his visits, like the one to "the view," romney sending his wife, ann, instead. his own appearances carefully courting his base. a dozen appearances this year alone with popular conservative host sean hannity. and in canton, ohio, tonight, supporters here hopeful they can overcome the president's small, but stubborn, lead here. the one thing he says that resonates the most? >> resonates most? jobs. >> reporter: jobs, economy, we hear that so much, diane. and with that gender gap among men helping mitt romney, that's why the obama campaign focusing so much on undecided women who very much could hold the key now to a second term for barack obama. diane? high stakes on both sides. >> all right. yeah, david, and great to have you reporting tonight. >>> and as you said, the presidential race keeps coming bac

"washington post" poll, president obama leads about 51% to governor romney's 47%. back in september, the president had a stronger lead, 52% to 44% in virginia. why do you think the governor has been able to close the gap in the commonwealth? >> i think just like you see nationally and a lot of other swing states, after a first debate performance in early october for governor romney. he managed to show people kind of a different face than they had seen in a lot of negative advertisements or depicted by president obama and a lot of his allies. you've seen him gain nationally in a lot of swing states just like in virginia. the question is, have enough momentum now to put him over the top and that's kind of the question that everyone is asking themselves nine days out from the el

with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hamilton county. it was blue four years ago. the state including cincinnati, 52% for the republican ticket, 47% for president obama. mitt romney -- it's a classic swing state, both campaigns essentially getting what they need where they need it. who can turn out the vote. >> and turn out the vote comes down to the ground game and they are saying we have a better ground game, more people. >> i see the president has a head sta
